Steuben is a red grape that we press off the skins quickly, like a white, in order to make this ”blush” wine. Our goal is to present Steuben in its lightest, freshest and most delicate form. Thus it is fermented at low temperature
and bottled early with a tad of residual CO2 (and sugar). This wine is delicately sweet with strawberries, peaches and grapefruit. It is great for sipping and pairs well with light cheeses and spicy Asian dishes.

East coast pioneers Eric and Lee Miller founded Chaddsford Winery in 1982. We are located in the Brandywine Valley to the southwest of Philadelphia. We are Pennsylvania’s largest and best known winery. Today winemaker Jim Osborn carries on a thirty-year tradition of locally sourced, quality wines.
Over the years we at Chaddsford have done it all. We cultivated our own vineyards, sourced grapes from our trusted growers, and purchased small lots from as far as Washington. Our main goal in making wine is to provide you with a wine that you enjoy. Every year we produce a wide variety of wines and every year that changes because we pick the best fruit in order to make you the best wine. We have made and you might find on our shelves dry varietals like Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir, many of these nationally acclaimed. Also you might try some of our small lot wines, part of winemaker Jim Osborn’s new Artisan series, like our Noriet. We also produce our fun and easy to drink varietals like Niagara, Sangria and Spiced Apple.
We at Chaddsford Winery desire to bring to you quality wines. We pride ourselves on our reputation and providing you with the best experience possible. You can find our wines in many retail shops throughout Pennsylvania. We also sell our sweet wines in retail locations in Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland, DC, Virginia, West Virginia and other states. Here at the winery we focus on customer enjoyment and satisfaction. We host events every month of the year, from our Snow Bar in the winter to our Sangria Sundays in the summer. Whether you purchase a bottle of our wine at a store, visit us at the Winery, or our Peddlers Village location we hope you have an enjoyable experience from your first sip to your last..
